Book Description
With a new introduction by the author about the process of the novel becoming a film.

Now a film – Lost and Delirious – based on the bestselling novel, directed by Lea Pool and starring Piper Perabo, Jessica Paréand Mischa Barton.

This fall Susan Swan’s gothic tale of sexual longing and repression at a boarding school for proper young ladies comes to the big screen in a critically acclaimed production renamed Lost and Delirious. Renowned film critic Roger Ebert called it “one of the most carefully crafted, most professional films...at this year’s Sundance Film Festival...the characters are enormously interesting and likable [and] gorgeous.”

    [I'm an Italian native speaker, so forgive my mistakes]

    First of all, I have to say this book has nothing related to "Lost and delirious" but character's name and age.

    "The wives of Bath" is about the difficult life of a girl, Pauline, who feels and wants to be like a boy even though her body and society say it is awkward and weird. The only one who tries to understand her is Mouse, the narrator.
    Everything is well-written and full of fun, mistery and jokes that make the wonderful story even more enjoyable.

    Once you have read it, maybe you can understand better how terrible is to be a transsexual (or a lesbian, or generally queer) in a world that doesn't accept you as you are.
